Subject Licensing concern...
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2008 03:08:36 GMT


I have a situation where a commercial company provides a kind of 
high-performance database engine, which has its own API. It is available both 
in a commercial-style license and AGPLv3.

Now, the same company is offering a bridge component that implements 
our "Persistence" SPI being backed by the above database. The company is 
offering this bridge under Apache License v2.

The idea is that the component is contributed, and the user downloads the 
AGPLv3 version directly from their site.

Now, I just want to make sure that the Copyright owner can "violate" the 
AGPLv3 by not making the bridge component AGPLv3 as well, and has the legal 
right to license it under ALv2. Is that correct?
